ABOUT KAISER PERMANENTE — SOUTH SACRAMENTO MEDICAL CENTER
One of more than 600 Kaiser Permanente medical facilities around the country, the South Sacramento Medical Center is a walk-in clinic with a behavioral health department that offers outpatient treatment for adults and adolescents struggling with substance use disorder. Located off Route 99, nine miles south of Midtown Sacramento, the facility also offers ambulatory detox services. It's one of 216 California substance abuse treatment facilities to provide detoxification on an outpatient basis, which make up about 15 percent of all treatment facilities in the state.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
No appointment is needed for adults, but adolescents should make an appointment before coming to the facility.
Care is offered mainly in structured support group settings, though individual therapy, family counseling, and education classes are also available. Clients are expected to attend outside self-help meetings such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and/or Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Al-Anon meetings are held for loved ones.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) for adults is available. Treatment lasts 21 days and consists of group therapy, psychoeducational classes, and individual therapy sessions. Clients are not allowed to work while enrolled in the program.
Adolescent programs include teen recovery groups and teen-specific 12-step meetings, as well as family education classes and parent support groups.
Though the center’s website does not confirm this, Rehabs.com reviews indicated that medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with Suboxone is available at this facility. The website does note that the center offers an opioid safety program, which includes therapy, support groups, and pain management education. Of all substance abuse treatment facilities in California, only 11 percent offer opioid treatment programs.
The treatment team includes licensed clinical social workers, addiction medicine physicians, internists, psychiatrists, psychologists, certified alcohol and drug counselors, nurses, and marriage and family therapists.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the five total alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date, three would recommend the center, one remained neutral on the question, and one would not recommend the center. The four of these reviewers who were surveyed about specific metrics provided mixed-to-high average ratings.
Staff's level of training and experience: 4/5
While the majority of former clients reported having success with the program, they also indicated that it was pretty no-frills."Overall it was a helpful program," wrote Jordan in a representative review. "Counselors and the groups. They do not offer a wide variety of services."
Counseling options: 3/5
In terms of price, the four former clients indicated that the center was competitive. "For the price it was good, but if you can afford private care it would probably be more benifical," explained one anonymous alum.
While there was no specific mention of the behavioral health department, South Sacramento Medical Center as a whole received mixed feedback on secondary sites, earning average ratings of 3.8 out of five stars based on 499 Facebook reviews, 3.3 out of five stars based on 147 Google reviews, and three out of five stars based on 152 Yelp reviews.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The two loved ones polled by Rehabs.com to date gave the center positive feedback. One, an anonymous mother between the ages of 40 and 59, said she would recommend the facility to others and gave it four out of five stars for its family participation, its counseling options, its cleanliness, and the overall quality of its mental health treatment.
The other respondent, a parent whose son attended the program, reported that their child's treatment was successful and described it as a "great experience."
As a Kaiser Permanente facility, this center is in-network with Kaiser Permanente. It also takes MediCal and Medicaid, the latter of which is accepted by 29 percent of all substance abuse treatment facilities in California.
